Alec Baldwin's Late Night Show Suspended By MSNBC

It appears that Alec Baldwin's anti-gay slurs will now have some professional consequences at least for a few weeks. 

MSNBC has suspended his late night show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin. Baldwin will be off the air both tonight and next week. 

Baldwin released the following statement in response:

I would like to address the comments I made this past week.

I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand “Up Late” will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week.

I want to apologize to my loyal fans and to my colleagues at MSNBC – both for my actions and for distracting from their good work. Again, please accept my apology.

Did MSNBC make the right move? 

What do you make of Baldwin's apology?

I agree - i accept his apology - let's move on.

He was pissed that a pesky photographer was in his face.. It happened, he appologized. I'm gay and sometimes I'd let it slip...

I Am Gay and I have met Alec Baldwin several times, even having a couple converstaions with him. as He and i lived in East Hampton NY. its been many years, but he clearly is not homophobic and is actually a really nice guy.

Anyone can be really nice, but is their innate intent or uncensored tirades the most clear indication of their strongest felt emotions...I dunno, like kinda being drunk, or so brilliant you tend to disregard logic. I do not know Alec, personally, but peering thru the slivers of episodes that he allows is pretty indicative of brilliance masked by bullshit. I guess life IS a stage....ultimately we are all players, and all human.

"I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone."

Then shut the hell up, Baldwin, or go talk to your gay hairdresser you brought out for a photo op to show you are not anti-gay.

Please...

Enough is enough already a lot of people pay for this kind of bad behavior all the time and some get passes like him but enough is enough he needs to live by his own standards he says he's an ally of the gay community well behave like one, damn it!

Good, the show was DREADFUL!!!! Just because you are a great guest on someone else's show doesn't make you a a Good Talk Show Host!!! Stick to acting and giving the repub's hell at every chance tho!!!!
